Good News For Me ...

Postby Pete Cooper » Sat Mar 28, 2015 6:33 pm

I started 2015 with a new job that I accidentally got without applying for, and it came with a decent payrise so that was good - and somewhat unexpected at my age.
Last Monday my daughter was successful in gaining a post with a recruitment company - a big change from her current post of managing a café, but again it's much better for her as it has a proper career path.
Then on Thursday my son proposed to his girlfriend(on her birthday) and she accepted - they've lived together for quite a few years now but we are all really pleased.
Life is currently good.

Very happy for you Pete.

You are a good guy and it is only fitting that sometimes good stuff happens.

Looking forward to meeting up again soon - it has been too long.

Good vibes, long may they reverberate. 20' - 30' Berths available, Clyde.
Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

For the job, you have my condolences. I simply don't know how anyone finds the time for work when they have a boat. For the rest, well done and enjoy!
